4/27/22 Updates

From Mr Ketterer:

Good Morning,

Just wanted to send out a few updates to everyone. Marching Band spring training will start Tuesday May 10th and will go from 6-8pm. Spring training will be every Tuesday until June 21st and then we will be off for the summer. Band Camp for marching band students will be held from August 15 – 20th. August 15 -19 will run from 1pm-9pm and the 20th will run from 1-5pm with a preview show at 5:30pm and a cook out at 6pm.

The Marching Band, Winter Guard, and Winter Percussion Banquet will be held on Monday May 23, 2022 at the EnVision Hotel (old Holiday Inn) in Mansfield from 6-10pm. The cost for students is covered, parents and plus ones for students are $25 each. Here is a link to the google form to help us get a head count for the banquet: president. If you need financial assistance for the fathead please let me know privately so that every senior can get their recognition at the banquet.

The Gillette Sub-Committee has been doing a fantastic job signing us up for a variety of events. Please take a look at their sign up genius and volunteer your time if/when you can. Marching Band, Winter Guard and Winter Percussion are heavily supported by this fundraiser. We would not be able to provide each student with the same level of experience without the support of families volunteering their time and continuing to raise funds for these programs. This fundraiser supports the MBPA in providing funds for trips to competitions and show fees, busses, truck rentals and gas to/from events, instruments, costumes, equipment, financial aid, and more. Please take a look at the list of events that still need staffing and see if you can sign up. Staffing and organizing these events is a tireless job, and a lot of work. Thank you for everything that you do to help us provide these meaningful opportunities for our students. https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0a4caaac28a3f94-2022

Lastly, the MBPA meeting scheduled for May 4th has been rescheduled to May 11th. It will be held in the MHS Choir room and starts at 7pm.

Thank You,

Mr. Ketterer
